The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Film and Television) course aims to develop writer/directors with distinctive individual creative voices, and detailed practical knowledge of all stages of film and television production.
This course is a three-year full-time degree that offers study in production based, practical film making and screen-based storytelling. Theoretical knowledge and practical skills are developed through an immersive and practical curriculum in studio and production environments. Students are provided with ongoing opportunities to initiate, develop, and realise short film projects to industry standard with access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, under the guidance of professional and academic staff with significant industry experience.
Students will also perform key crewing roles on other student productions and are involved in creative interdisciplinary collaborations with students from VCA Schools of Theatre, Music, and Production. Studies in screen culture allow students to deepen their knowledge of cinema and screen-based storytelling, focusing on elements essential to the practice of filmmaking. Breadth subjects at each year level will also allow students to explore a diverse range of study opportunities within the wider University community, exposing them to multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills.
The capstone subject Screen Practice 3B provides students with the opportunity to focus on the development and realisation of a substantial short film work at a professional level.
